We will have the possibility to get Meltan shiny from tomorrow until March 4 in Pokémon GO.
Today the Lunar Year event has started on Pokémon GO. As was anticipated yesterday, several Pokémon appear more frequently. As the year of the pig is celebrated, Spoink is the protagonist of this event. It can also be obtained in its shiny version.
This holiday has not modified the field research tasks that remain the same as we have been enjoying during the month of January.
What has caught us by surprise is the arrival of a new shiny Pokémon to the list , neither more nor less than the unique Pokémon, Meltan .
Meltan shiny available in Pokémon GO
Meltan shiny arrives just in time to celebrate the Lunar Year event. Of course, will be available until March 4 as indicated on the official page of Pokémon GO .
It is a new legendary Pokémon that appeared by surprise on the Day of the Community of Chikorita . Little by little, more information was discovered about the nut Pokémon, which evolves into Melmetal when it gets 400 candies in Pokémon GO.
Now, thanks to the event that has just begun, we have the opportunity to get Meltan shiny and therefore its evolution. It can be achieved in two ways in Pokémon GO:
- As a reward in the special investigation tasks , fulfilling all the missions.
- Transferring Pokémon from the mobile game to Pokémon Let’s GO Pikachu and Eevee you get a Mystery Box. When opening it, several Meltan come out and therefore there are more chances of getting the shiny version.
Thanks to the special event the waiting time is reduced to three days to reopen the Mystery Box. That yes, you have to transfer again some Pokémon between games. You have to be careful, because if you open the Mystery Box before the event, you would have to wait 7 days to use it again.
